Yellow Brick Road

Writer's Block: Lucas for a day

I would love to see the story of what happens between RotS and ANH. 
If you could write the next Star Wars movie, what story would you tell? It could be anything: a sequel, prequel, or anything in-between. Describe your adventure in 300 words or less. Our favorite story will receive a Star Wars saga Blu-ray gift pack! [Contest Details]

So, my story, would be about what happens between the two.  I want to see the training Obi-Wan does.  Obviously, it's a way to communicate with the Force Ghosts, but I'd like to see that.  And, I'd like a bit more of a backstory on Han.  Because we don't know a whole lot about him.  We know he's a smuggler.  But that's about it.  I'd love a bit more of a backstory on Han.  And the story of Leia is lacking a bit too.  I'd love to see more development on her.  And I want to see how the Empire grows.  So here's my little "story", if you will.

Star Wars: Episode III 1/2: Birth of an Empire

A long time a go, in a galaxy far, far away

The Galaxy is in a state of unrest.  War has broken out and the Galactic Empire is in control.
The Emperor has his apprentace, Darth Vader, in charge of overseeing the construction on
the most powerful weapon in the Galaxy, the Death Star.  Once construction is complete, it
will be used to destroy planets that are in uprising and opposing the Empire.

A small band of Rebels has been forming.  Obi-Wan Kenobi has traveled down to the
barren planet of Tattooine, to further learn the ways of the Force.  His friend and mentor,
Yoda, told him that he'd be communicating with an old friend.  His old Master, Qui-Gon

Down on the planet of Alderan, Senator Bail Organa, is leading a small group of
Rebels, to take down the Empire.  Part of that group, is his daughter, Leia Organa.
Who is currently the youngest member of the Senate.  The group has made plans
to meet up with Obi-Wan down on Tattooine and there, they will lead an attack
on the Empire...
